Trivia[edit]

  • "Oh No" was going to be the fifth recorded song by A.B's sister Selena in 1995 in English under the title "Oh No (I'll Never Fall in Love Again)" for her album Dreaming of You but she sadly was killed the same day she was set to record it. In this album A.B. recorded the song in Spanish. In 2015 Selena's father released the song as thank you to the fans who kept writing letters asking about the English version. Though it was not recorded professionally Selena performed the song at a rehearsal.
  • "U Don't Love Me" was featured on McDonald's promotional album The Rhythm in 2000.
